Question For The Gym Nerds
Early in her elite career, Erica Stokes chose to turn professional as part of an endorsement opportunity for Minute Maid. While this clip includes clips from the 1990 National Championships, it is unclear exactly when it was filmed. Erica talks about wanting to do well at Nationals and qualify for the Goodwill Games, which indicates that she was interviewed prior to Nationals; however, Chelle Stack is seen in the background in the clips, but she did not return until after 1990 Nationals.
The question remains: who is the girl in the pink leggings with the seemingly nice lines? Her legs are not that bulky, which indicates that she couldn't have been training with Bela for that long when this was shot. If Chelle is in the clip, it means that Amanda Uhereck was already out with a broken back and that Amy Scherr was either injured or suffering from mono, or about to be injured. Now, is it Kerri Strug? Was this filmed over several months? Is this really from 1990 Winter Nationals or is it mislabeled on the youtube channel? Can anyone make sense of this?
